Nursery Rhymes.........

Today the electrician has fitted some new energy saving lights in the kitchen and the hall hopefully they will help to reduce the electricity bill!!!!!!! So this is a quick post as I have all the cleaning up to do now ........yuk!  So in between making tea for the electrician.....you have to keep them sweet lol.....I have also been catching up on some crafting and  have managed to make some ATC's, some are for a forum swap and one for the challenge over at Wicked Wednesday #16 Fairy Tales/ Nursery Rhymes I have chosen Nursery Rhymes and have used a Free Stamp with Craft Stamper Magazine..... to make Cock-a-doodle-doo.

Cock-a-doodle-do my dame
has lost her shoe
my master has lost his fiddling stick
and doesn't know what to do
Background was a piece I had already in my ATC box and it looks like  I used a cosmic shimmer spray
I stamped the Cockerel in versamark and embossed with black EP stamped him out again and coloured using DI's wild honey, fired brick, pine needles, the shoe was cut from a magazine....can you believe I didn't have one shoe stamp that was suitable!... violin charm was in my stash mounted onto a dark blue piece of card.
  I am a bit late with this challenge but was determined to play especially as I was the lucky winner last week.....thanks Jenn.

Thanks for all the lovely comments left on my first Chunky ATC here

Bye for now
